  • Detecting Hardware Trojans using On-chip Sensors in an ASIC Design
    • Abstract: Abstract The modern integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing process has exposed the fabless semiconductor industry to hardware Trojans that threaten circuits bound for critical applications. This paper investigates an on-chip sensor’s effectiveness for Trojan detection in an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) and proposes new techniques to improve the sensor’s sensitivity to Trojan switching activity. The sensors serve as power supply monitors by detecting fluctuations in their characteristic frequencies due to malicious inclusions (i.e. hardware Trojans) in the circuit under authentication. Our proposed on-chip structure was implemented and fabricated on an ASIC test chip using IBM 90nm technology with controlled hardware Trojans. This work analyzes the impact of both sequential and combinational Trojans with varied partial activity, area, and location on the proposed on-chip structure and demonstrates that stealthy Trojans can be effectively detected with this technique, even when obfuscated by circuit switching activity and process and environmental variations.

  • Application-Based Analysis of Register File Criticality for Reliability
           Assessment in Embedded Microprocessors
    • Abstract: Abstract There is an increasing concern to reduce the cost and overheads during the development of reliable systems. Selective protection of most critical parts of the systems represents a viable solution to obtain a high level of reliability at a fraction of the cost. In particular to design a selective fault mitigation strategy for processor-based systems, it is mandatory to identify and prioritize the most vulnerable registers in the register file as best candidates to be protected (hardened). This paper presents an application-based metric to estimate the criticality of each register from the microprocessor register file in microprocessor-based systems. The proposed metric relies on the combination of three different criteria based on common features of executed applications. The applicability and accuracy of our proposal have been evaluated in a set of applications running in different microprocessors. Results show a significant improvement in accuracy compared to previous approaches and regardless of the underlying architecture.

  • Analog Circuit Fault Diagnosis via Sensitivity Computation
    • Abstract: Abstract In this paper, we present a new recursive method to compute higher order sensitivities of node voltages, as well as those of circuit performances (gain, input and output impedances, or reflection coefficients) with respect to all circuit parameters. Using the sensitivity coefficients we formulate multivariate polynomial equations. Fault identification is obtained by solving these equations with respect to element deviations. This task can be accomplished by using a multivariable Newton–Raphson procedure (mNR) for solving nonlinear multivariable equations.

  • A Power Efficient BIST TPG Method on Don’t Care Bit Based 2-D
           Adjusting and Hamming Distance Based 2-D Reordering
    • Abstract: Abstract A power efficient BIST TPG method is proposed to reduce test power dissipation during scan testing. Before the test patterns are injected into scan chain, the test set adopts a series of preprocessed strategies including don’t care bit based 2-D adjusting, Hamming Distance based 2-D reordering and test cube matrix based two transpose, all steps will be orderly executed in interspersed way. The six largest ISCAS’89 benchmark circuits verify the proposed method. Experimental results show that the switching activities are effectively reduced when the test set is loaded for on-chip scan testing. ASDFR with MT-filling scheme ensures high compression ratio, the scan-in test power dissipation is further decreased by don’t care bit based 2-D adjusting and Hamming Distance 2-D reordering. In addition, the BIST TPG method with less test application time and smaller algorithm complexity can be widely applied to actual chip design without adding extra decoder area overhead.

  • Low Cost Sparse Multiband Signal Characterization Using Asynchronous
           Multi-Rate Sampling: Algorithms and Hardware
    • Abstract: Abstract Characterizing the spectrum of sparse wideband signals of high-speed devices efficiently and precisely is critical in high-speed test instrumentation design. Recently proposed sub-Nyquist rate sampling systems have the potential to significantly reduce the cost and complexity of sparse spectrum characterization; however, due to imperfections and variations in hardware design, numerous implementation and calibration issues have risen and need to be solved for robust and stable signal acquisition. In this paper, we propose a low-cost and low-complexity hardware architecture and associated asynchronous multi-rate sub-Nyquist rate sampling based algorithms for sparse spectrum characterization. The proposed scheme can be implemented with a single ADC or with multiple ADCs as in multi-channel or band-interleaved sensing architectures. Compared to other sub-Nyquist rate sampling methods, the proposed hardware scheme can achieve wideband sparse spectrum characterization with minimum cost and calibration effort. A hardware prototype built using off-the-shelf components is used to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed approach.

  • A New Test Point Selection Method for Analog Circuit
    • Abstract: Abstract A new method to select an optimum test point set in analog fault diagnosis is proposed in this paper. As the probability density of the circuit output approximately satisfies the normal distribution, an accurate way for determining the fault ambiguity gap is used to calculate the isolation probability of the faults. The proposed fault-pair isolation table derived from the mean and standard deviation values of node voltage can exactly represent the fault-pair isolation capability of the test points. The special test points that can uniquely isolate some particular fault pairs are selected first. This step can help to save the total cost of the computation time and even find the final solution directly. After removing the isolated fault pairs (rows) and the selected test points (columns), the size of the fault-pair isolation table could reduce dramatically. If more optimum test points are needed, the normalized fault-pair isolation probability values in the table are used to select the right test point that has the largest fault-pair isolation capability among all the candidate test points. Analog circuits’ examples and the statistical experiments are given to demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed algorithm. The other reported algorithms are also used to do the comparison. The results indicate that the proposed algorithm has excellent performance in minimizing the size of the test point set. Therefore, it is a good solution and applicable to actual circuits and engineering practice.

  • Harzard-Based ATPG for Improving Delay Test Quality
    • Abstract: Abstract Fault coverage is a popular test criterion in delay testing. In order to improve test coverage, an efficient automatic test pattern generation (ATPG) method especially aimed at hazard-based detection condition (HDC), referred to as HDC test generation, is proposed. The proposed method effectively enhances the testability of the faults which are undetectable under conventional detection conditions (CDC) but may fail the circuit in some special function operations. The necessity and feasibility of the hazard-based detection condition is analyzed. Using the improved traditional stuck-at fault test generation tool, we have implemented an efficient HDC test generation for transition delay fault. Experimental results on ISCAS’89 benchmark circuits demonstrate that the proposed HDC test generation can improve the fault converage by an average of 3.64 % for conventional LOS test and an average of 4.6 % for conventional LOC test.

  • Pattern Generation for Understanding Timing Sensitivity to Power Supply
           Noise
    • Abstract: Abstract Timing prediction has become more and more difficult with shrinking technology nodes. Combining the pre-silicon delay model with post-silicon timing measurements has the potential to improve the accuracy of timing analysis. In this work, we address the problem of automatic test pattern generation for understanding circuit timing sensitivity to power supply noise (PSN) during post-silicon validation. Long paths are selected from a pseudo functional test set to span the power delivery network. To determine the sensitivity of timing to on-chip noise, the patterns are intelligently filled to achieve the desired PSN level. Our previous PSN control scheme is enhanced to consider both spatial and temporal information for better correlation with functional PSN. These patterns can be used to understand timing sensitivity in post-silicon validation by repeatedly applying the path delay test while sweeping the PSN experienced by the path from low to high.

  • Compressive Sampling Coupled OFDM Technique for Testing Continuous Wave
           Radar
    • Abstract: Abstract Testing continuous wave (CW) radar circuitry is a challenging and time consuming process that requires characterizing system response over a wide range of frequencies. Step frequency continuous wave (SFCW) functional test is widely adopted for CW radar through a large number of frequency tones generation and characterization. For an ultra-wideband radar system, SFCW testing can be very time consuming. In this paper, we propose a new approach to increase test speed at low cost and low design overhead by combining OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) in conjunction with compressive sampling (CS) algorithm. In the test, OFDM is applied for multi-tone signal generation while compressive sampling is for frequency tone reduction. To show equivalent test performance, SFCW test and OFDM-CS test are both performed to characterize a sample ground penetrating radar (GPR). Simulation results are presented for validations.

  • Pseudo Functional Path Delay Test through Embedded Memories
    • Abstract: Abstract Memory arrays cannot be as easily tested as other storage elements. They can be considered as non-scan cells. Memory built-in self-test (MBIST), functional test, and macro test are used to test memory arrays. However, these methods do not focus on the interaction between memory and surrounding logic, so may not cover timing critical paths. In this paper, we propose path delay test through memory arrays using pseudo functional test with K Longest Paths Per Gate (PKLPG). Long paths captured into a non-scan cell (including a memory cell) are propagated to a scan cell or primary output, and non-scan cells are initialized so that they can launch transitions onto long paths. This allows scan tests to cover critical paths into and out of memory arrays.

  • Testing Disturbance Faults in Various NAND Flash Memories
    • Abstract: Abstract NAND flash memory is one popular non-volatile memory. Flash memory is prone to disturbance faults due to its specific mechanism of functional operations. Furthermore, different NAND flash memories might be different on the array organizations and the supported functional operations. For example, some NAND flash memories can support the random program operation, but some cannot; some NAND flash memories with single-page wordlines and some with multiple-page wordlines. The differences on the array organizations and the functional operations result in the heavy influence on the testing of disturbance faults. In this paper, therefore, we analyze the disturbance faults for NAND flash memories with different array organizations and functional operations. Also, test algorithms for covering the disturbance faults in various types of NAND flash memories are proposed.

  • Single Event Resilient Dynamic Logic Designs
    • Abstract: Abstract Dynamic logic families are commonly used in high speed applications, but they are susceptible to single event errors. This paper presents and evaluates three techniques of hardening dynamic logic—layout manipulation using charge sharing, addition of a feedback capacitor across the static inverter, and dual-rail domino logic with differential keepers. The layout-based design has better single event tolerance by sharing charge between NFET devices of the dynamic and static inverters; the design with a feedback capacitor makes the keeper more effective in recovering the hit node because of the increased propagation delay; the differential-keeper structure shows superior SET performance because the hit node could recover through the restoring path in the case of charge loss. These proposed designs along with the reference traditional keeper-based design were fabricated in a 130 nm technology node as shift register chains and then irradiated by heavy ion particles. Experimental results verified the mechanisms and effectiveness of these proposed designs.

  • Characterization of a Passive Telemetric System for ISM Band Pressure
           Sensors
    • Abstract: Abstract This paper presents a passive telemetric system for ISM band pressure sensors. The passive telemetric system is consisted of an external planar spiral coil and a pressure sensor. Theoretical analysis for the principle of the telemetric technique is described. Since the sensitivity and efficiency of the telemetric system is related with the performance of the pressure sensor and external coil. The characterization of the critical parameters for the design of pressure sensor and inductive coils are presented and analyzed separately. The characteristic impedance of the system, expressed as the function of the frequency, is measured by R&S ZVA67 VNA. The Measurement results show that the resonant frequency of the pressure sensor can shift from 397.83 to 396.84 MHz with an increasing pressure from 0 to 100 mmHg. This measurement proves the work of the telemetric system and also reflects that the ISM band pressure sensor has a high pressure sensitivity of 0.92 KHz/mmHg.
